A couple weeks ago, I got to visit Whistler in British Columbia, Canada for the first time ever! It was for my first bachelorette party for a dear friend from my college cheer team. Whistler was SO much fun for a summer trip. We were a group of about 10-12, and we splurge-rented a fancy-pants ski lodge for our weekend so that we could each have our own bed and be able to have a little privacy. It was well worth it, and such a gorgeous property. Whistler is mostly a ski town in the winters, but it is still very much a fun summer destination too! Our lodge was within walking distance to the main part of town where shopping and restaurants/bars were located. We rented bicycles and took the easy and flat bike / hiking trails to a lake, and then took on the night after we got all dolled up. To our surprise, this town is also a popular destination for other bachelor and bachelorette parties!
The morning after, we visited the Olympic Rings and then another old college cheer teammate and I did a side-hike before going back to the US. We visited a train wreck site! The site is not the actual location of the wreck, but was the chosen dumping ground for a wreck that occurred in 1956. There is a suspension bridge over a beautifully blue river that you cross to get to it!
